Fusion / Eclectic
Bringing together the distinct flavors of regions in Asia, Europe, the Americas and beyond, The Rise Eatery pushes boundaries of culinary ingenuity. Guests reap the rewards of executive chef Dan Leung’s limitless imagination and 10-plus years of cooking experience. Seasonally inspired menu items reflect and celebrate the ethnic diversity of Vancouver. We’re one of the few, if not only, places in town where Germany greets South Korea, China meets Peru, and Scotland welcomes Vietnam with open arms on a plate. Crafted with fresh, locally sourced ingredients and prepared in a way that’s meant to be shared, our menu encourages an exploration of global tastes, techniques, and cultures. Equally innovative items are served at lunch in sets and creative brunch items are served on Saturdays & Sundays. Dining experiences in our modern, light-filled room are fun without falling lax, sophisticated without feeling stuffy. Attentive service is also our top priority.

We enjoyed the outdoor patio. Menu varied and unique - a few select meat, vegan and vegetarian choices. Included small serving of sorbet. Excellent and personable service. We will definitely return.

We had tickets to the Arts Club.
Seating was ready. server was prompt and friendly. Kitchen was slow. Ordered 3 course set meal. We received 2nd course at 7:10. Asked for dessert and bill. Out at 7:20. Very rushed.

Very good food. Innovative, fresh and well cooked. The only disappointment was the heart attack rice which lacked a USP. Chicken Seoul Good, squash dish, pork belly and salad were all fantastic.
Service started well but seemed to evaporate when we wanted the cheque.
Very few diners on a Tuesday evening so it lacked some atmosphere but I expect this would be good at busier times.

Great food, but the place was empty. I wonder why really, the food is amazing there. Different without being just original for the sake of it. SOme daring dishes, other more classic, all very well crafted,

I would recommend The Rise based on the flavours of a few of the dishes we tried provided there were no other time related commitments. Drink and food service was somewhat slower than other tapas style restaurants but the meals were very nice

It was our first visit to The Rise Eatery. It was wonderful. The Pseudo Crudo was delicious and don’t tell Mary, lamb popsicles were among the best I have ever tasted. My husband’s scallops and his flat iron steak were outstanding. We were served by charming Jaron.it was indeed a memorable experience. We shall return and we shall recommend it to all our friends. It was very reasonably priced and the naming of the dishes on the menu was delightful

Food was a bit split - some really awesome dishes and some that were just okay. Outdoor patio was great. I would still go back and try different things. Drinks were also good!

The service was exceptional and the food, well the food was freaking spectacular! It was our first time there and we had a 7:30 reso for a Friday night. The place wasn't busy yet so we got to enjoy our meal with a quieter atmosphere. I was surprised that the food came out at perfect times, as most restaurants have food come out too fast or too slow. A must try is the well know Uni-versal pasta, Chicken Seoul Good and surprisingly the Buried Treasure. For someone who's not a fan of vegetables the Miso braised vegetables from the Buried Treasure dish was amazing!

Went for brunch. Interesting menu. Meals were hit or miss, unfortunately. The salmon on the upstream benny had a canned vibe. Nice space and nice little patio- I would go back for the waffles or try again for lunch or dinner.

Thank you for recent visit. We are sorry to hear you weren’t pleased with your meal and appreciate your feedback. We would like to assure you that the Upstream Maple is made with wild salmon that is cured in-house with maple syrup and then lightly smoked. The salmon is then mixed with lemon zest, fresh dill and cream cheese before being served. We hope you will return in the future to try some of our other items.

Service too slow for theater attendees. We eventually got about 30% of our order with 5 minutes spare to dash. What we got was excellent, but getting the whole meal and having time to enjoy would have been a reasonable expectation. In fairness staff did address our concerns as best they could.

We have eaten here about 5 times. Every time does not disappoint.

We took 3 friends who had their first experience there with us. They enjoyed it as well, which I knew they would.

I inadvertently booked the wrong night but when I called the restaurant to correct it, they were very helpful and accommodating.

One of our favourites in the city.

We wanted to try something new and had no expectation going in to this place. We were very pleasantly surprised by the whole dining experience.

Drinks: reasonably priced artisan cocktails

Food: generously portioned appetizers which can easily be shared between two people and mains were creatively delicious

Service: attentive, friendly and helpful

Price: very respectable given the quality and portions

We will definitely be back!

My first experience at the Rise was fabulous.
My friend and I were seated in the bar/lounge rather than the dining area. Noise level was minimal and service / food were exceptional.

Second experience— seared in dining area—extremely noisy, hot due to large windows and wonderful sunshine- no blinds. Server was lovely and gave us 20% off due to poor food quality—both meals were lukewarm and we’d waited awhile so ate anyway.

Would try one more time but with scepticism.

Maybe I’m the wrong person to ask because I have yet to dine at a fusion restaurant that I love but I’m an adventurous eater. Our group had some dishes better than others. The biggest problem was the slow service when the server asked us as we sat what time we needed to be finished (as this is in the theatre district and we had a show to attend.) In all, it was fine, but not great.
